PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Give a natural flush to your cheeks in one quick step! This lightweight formula blends effortlessly to provide sheer, all-over color as well as subtle, shimmering accents, contours and dynamic highlights to your cheeks.

FOR BEST RESULT
1) Twist blush up and apply to the apples of your cheeks and glide across your cheekbone, blend with fingertips or sponge in a soft circular motion for a sheer flush of color. To build a deeper flush repeat this step again.
2) For a contouring effect use darker shade such as South Street Seashell right below cheek bone and blend outward toward hairline, then use a highlighting shade like Plaza Pink to apply onto the apples of your cheeks and blend outward.

WHY I LOVE THIS PRODUCT
First of all, sorry that I’m really late with this review. I had purchased a while ago and have been using it for at least a month now. However, there were other stuff that I needed to review so these brushable creme sticks had to wait until now. So sorry! I know that some of you have been waiting so long to hear my thoughts about this product.

Okay, onto the actual product. These blush sticks do contain a shimmery sheen to it but it’s not that noticable once it’s on the cheeks. I think it’s very versatile and easy to apply. Though this product is meant to be applied with fingers, but I perfer applying this cream blush with a brush instead. (Sometimes your fingers can be dirty and you wouldn’t want dirty fingers to be smudging on your clean face) You can first apply some of the product onto your cheeks and then use a brush to blend or you can dip your brush on the top of the stick and then apply to face. Either way works really well. The colour pay off with this product is amazing. Very little of the product can go a really long way. Here’s a swatch of the two different colours:

See how vibrant the colours are with just one stroke? There sticks are very, very pigmented. They are also very buildable. Plaza Pink gives my cheeks a very subtle look to them. It’s very pretty and natural. While on the other hand, Big Apple Blush is more noticable because it’s a bit darker and has more red pigments. Big Apple Blush looks great with a nude colour lipstick. These blushes also do not feel sticky on my skin and they are very smooth. For around $4 CAD a stick, these Brushable Creme Sticks from N.Y.C are worth every penny.
